Imagine taking a bite of your favorite crunchy or chewy food. Everything seems fine, but then, a sharp pain shoots through your mouth. You find yourself chewing on a piece of your own tooth. Dental cracking and breaking occurs relatively frequently, and you’d be surprised how many patients choose not to restore these problems right away. However, over time these cracked and broken teeth become susceptible to tooth decay and root canal infections as bacteria is able to directly affect the inner layers of your tooth. In the past, restoring a broken tooth was considered too timely and ineffective, so patients would often have the tooth pulled. At Juno Beach Smiles, we practice conservative dentistry which means we always attempt to preserve natural tooth structure, but we are also a cosmetic dentist which means we want your smile to look as good as it feels after restoration. That’s why for severely cracked and broken teeth or teeth that have undergone root canal therapy, we recommend porcelain or metal supported porcelain dental crowns. If you have a tooth in need of repair, call Juno Beach Smiles to find out more about how dental crowns can give you back your beautiful smile.

Do you have an incomplete smile? If you suffer from tooth loss and are seeking a way to restore your full smile, you should consider the high quality crown and bridgework offered at Juno Beach Smiles. Crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices which won’t shift or move like dentures. Crowns and bridges can work on their own or can be cemented onto dental implants to permanently replace missing teeth. If you’re tired of dealing with tooth loss and ill fitting partial dentures, schedule a crown and bridgework consultation appointment with Juno Beach Smiles today. Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley are experienced restorative dentists, now proudly delivering quality care daily throughout: Juno Beach, FL, Palm Beach Gardens, Tequesta, North Palm Beach, and the surrounding communities.
What Is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are simply tooth shaped dental caps which can be placed over a vulnerable tooth to fully restore its natural shape, size, strength, and appearance. Dental crowns, when cemented firmly in place, fully encase the visible portion of a tooth above the gum line. They can also serve to fill in the missing space left by a tooth that has been completely lost.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges work in conjunction with dental crowns to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where your natural teeth are missing. Dental bridges can be cemented to either the surrounding teeth or a dental implant. Porcelain and ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Missing teeth can often cause surrounding teeth to shift, which can lead to bite misalignment as well as jaw soreness. Shifting teeth can also create new places for dental plaque to hide, increasing your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Don’t let a tooth loss problem turn into a larger oral health problem. Schedule the crown and bridgework appointment you need with Juno Beach Smiles today. Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley trusted restorative dentists, now proudly renewing smiles daily throughout: Juno Beach, FL, Palm Beach Gardens, Tequesta, North Palm Beach, and the neighboring areas.

At Juno Beach Restorative & Aesthetic, we’re proud to offer care that’s both affordable and durable.
One service that falls into both of those categories is a bridge. Formally known as a crown and bridge, this restorative service can help a patient replace a single missing tooth or several teeth in a row.
Because a bridge replaces one or more missing teeth, it’s similar to dental implants—another effective restorative service—but there’s a key difference. Dental implants are held in place by one or more prosthetic roots made of titanium. A bridge, on the other hand, helps patients enjoy solid, natural results by attaching to healthy nearby teeth.
A bridge procedure is also less invasive than a dental implants procedure. Getting dental implants requires invasive oral surgery, and the full process takes months to complete. A bridge, meanwhile, can be put in place in far less time and the recovery time is also much quicker. As a result, our patients from Juno Beach and beyond can have a beautiful looking smile again in short order.
Are you ready to restore what your smile is missing? Call Juno Beach Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry for an appointment with our Juno Beach dental team. Dr. Riley and Dr. Keuning would be happy to talk to you about this great tooth replacement option.
We offer restorative care to patients from nearby Florida communities, including North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Tequesta, and Jupiter as well.
